In the midst of an enthusiastic science lesson, teacher Rafe Esquith was wowed by his students' excited response until he realized what they were reacting to--his hair had caught on fire! Esquith has taught fifth-graders at Hobart Elementary in central Los Angeles for 25 years. He's outraged by the current testing crazes and worried about the stresses of society upon his students. Here he shares the basics on what makes his classroom work. His focuses are the development of passion for academic subjects and living kindly. This practical how-to book is a guide for new teachers and a revitalizer for frustrated professionals. James Yaegashi's performance is full of the zest that has won Esquith accolades from fans as diverse as Oprah Winfrey and the Dalai Lama.
